This prospectus supplement supplements the prospectus dated April 6, 2022 (as amended and supplemented from time to time, the “Prospectus”), which forms a part of our registration statement on Form S-l (No. 333-258306). This prospectus supplement is being filed to update and supplement the information in the Prospectus with the information contained in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 11, 2022 (the “Current Report”). Accordingly, we have attached the Current Report to this prospectus supplement.
The Prospectus and this prospectus supplement relate to the offer and sale of up to 35,144,690 shares of our Class A common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Class A common stock”), by YA II PN, LTD., a Cayman Islands exempt limited partnership (the “Selling Stockholder”). The shares of Class A common stock being offered by the Selling Stockholder have been and may be issued pursuant to the Equity Purchase Agreement dated July 23, 2021 that we entered into with the Selling Stockholder (the “Purchase Agreement”). We are not selling any securities under the Prospectus or this prospectus supplement and will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of our Class A common stock by the Selling Stockholder. However, we may receive up to $400.0 million in aggregate gross proceeds from sales of our Class A common stock to the Selling Stockholder that we may make under the Purchase Agreement from time to time. See the sections of the Prospectus titled “The YA Transaction” for a description of the transaction contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and “Selling Stockholder” for additional information regarding the Selling Stockholder.
The Selling Stockholder may sell the shares of Class A common stock included in the Prospectus and this prospectus supplement in a number of different ways and at varying prices. We provide more information about how the Selling Stockholder may sell the shares in the section of the Prospectus entitled “Plan of Distribution.” The Selling Stockholder is an “underwriter” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Our Class A common stock is listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “RIDE.” On August 10, 2022, the closing price of our Class A common stock was $2.61 per share.
